loves tech. >> all right, thanks so much, mark. ty, over to you. >> thank you, sue. cnbc.com's john carnie joins us with an exclusive interview with nassim taleb. he likes to call himself the ghost of talos. do you not like to call yourself that? >> that was not me. someone else started that. >> well anyhow, you are no fan of davos. >> let's get to that in a minute. but first, the thesis of anti-fragile. which is not only that you need to be less vulnerable it risk randomness, hiccups in the world, but you need to position yourself, your portfolio, so that you take advantage of that. is that a fair -- is that a fair -- if i got one thing right today, is that fair? >> perfect. you cannot use randomness and disorder and volatility as fuel. you won't make it. >> so how do you do that in today's cop tecntext as an inve? >> first of all, you have -- from being exposed to down side. you need to have a large segment of your portfolio immune from market movement. whatever that is. not cash, inflation hedge cash. or 20%, or whatever you're willing to risk, high number of diversified extremel

like durbin and schumer, liberal democrats going along with something with john mccain and lindsey graham, that's a pretty good sign that this will pass easily in the senate. i think one of the most intriguing stories is the fight for credit. i think there are going to be a lot of people headed by marco rubio who will want to get a lot of this credit. lori: on the political side but it also begs the question, right, greg, what happens to the millions of illegal immigrants already living and working in this country? will it put pressure on available jobs and other services like hospital care, et cetera, what do you think?. >> i don't think so. i would prefer to take a positive spin on this entire story. i think if you look at a country like japan which is a demographic train wreck with a huge deficit, much bigger than ours, we're adding lots of people who will pay social security taxes. who will pay other taxes. you're adding to our population i think a workforce that will actually help our fiscal issues far more than a country say like japan. lori: good comparison. help our fiscal

kristol or john hatoritz. also scott walker who is doing really well up in wisconsin. and all the republicans got up there, and they were saying the same thing. we've got to stop being the stupid party. we've been saying here for six months, we have got to -- and john, i thought, had one of the best points, that we have stifled debate. the conservative movement has stifled debate. and if you go out and you dare to stand out in a crowd, whether it's on taxes or regulations or in the past on immigration, you were completely shunned from the party. finally there's an understanding we've got to grow the party. what we've been saying for quite frankly for years and getting attacked, we want colin powell on our side. we want moderate republicans on our side. if we're going to be the majority party again, we've got to spend the party. >> are you saying they're pushing her out of the spotlight as part of making the stupid party less stupid? >> what i'm saying is that sarah palin represented a time and place in american politics. and not 2008 so much as 2010. and that time is passing u
. back on january 18th, john in virginia talked about mmr. it seemed interesting, it's a real estate investment trust that owns industrial properties. high-quality tenants including anheuser-bus anheuser-busch, fedex, kellogg's, sherwin williams. it's a fairly good list of stable clients. here's something we didn't like. over 40% of monmouth's square footage goes to fedex and subsidiaries. but you know what? that's a major league high concentration for one customer. monmouth has a juicy 4.5% yield. i don't want to own any investment trust so dependent on a single client. if you want a similar yield, go for hta, sports 5.5% yield and much more defensive business model. next up, last wednesday, larry from oregon raised a lot of interesting points regarding federal mogul, fdml for your home gamers. i said i just remembered it being a troubled auto part company. federal mogul corporation is a maker of power train and safety technologies, brake friction, chassis, wipers, and other vehicle components. supplies everybody from automakers to rail vehicles as well as the aerospace market. righ

could win, the very first primary comp petition -- contest emma john mccain beat him in points, he became a better candidate overnight. all of a sudden, somebody beat him. he became a much better candidate overnight and became a two term residents. we should want competition. that person never is ready for prime time. i think some of these governors are terrific. this movement should come up with a job description. if you are going to hire at national review, posted job description. why are we not doing that? it is not a litmus test. what should your skills be, your belief system. i think we will have to nominate people who are relatable. who have an everyman story. we have that on our side much more than they have that. what is so everyman about john kerry or rockefeller? let's get these people, because i am sure you are aware, voters do not ask, do i like you? they ask, are you like me? are you like me? do we have anything in common? what is our connective tissue? there is always one. people raise children every day. ross perot was worth four times the amount of money that mitt r
department, senator john kerry, faced questions before the senate foreign relations committee this week. during his opening remarks, he was interrupted by an anti-war protester, which triggered this personal reply. >> when i first came to washington to testify, i obviously was testifying as part of a group of people who came here to have their voices heard. and that is above all what this place is about. >> nearly 42 years ago, it was kerry who aimed to have his voice heard when he first appeared on capitol hill not as a politician but as a protester. the year, 1971. he was part of an anti-war group testifying before that very committee. but it was days before on this program where kerry gave the country its first look at a future leader. and it's this morning's "meet the press" moment. >> we are down here to demand that those who call themselves the most committed of all in this country, namely the senators and congressmen, who have been talking peace for the past few years, that these men exercise their responsibility granted them by the constitution of this country to end this war. >

got me involved in all of this, and john reed later on. were both i think significant world financial leaders. as far as having talked with a lot of people like, i think meeting mondello, having dealt with a number of cases, spent an hour in 1980 with fidel castro. he wanted my advice on how to restructure the cuban debt. and he said i can speak to you about that because we nationalize you in cuba, one of the first time who did was nationalist the foreign banks, and then you offset our reserves. so we're kind of evening. this was in nicaragua. certainly fascinating. i mean, i could run through so many people. one of the sessions with mondello, i was asked to tell mr. mole gabi, who was then president of zimbabwe and as the president of zimbabwe that he used all his time. he wasn't very happy with that. because of that i was able to do that our secretary of commerce ron brown asked me if i would cheer at the 50th anniversary in admissions the africa lunch that the us was getting at that time, which it did because he said look, if you can do that, then you can take everything else. so i
